Designers Michael and Nicole Colovos dove into Resort with a beach-worthy mix of basics that, they said, "focused on ease, proportion, and shape." Jellyfish were a prevalent themeovertly reflected in patterns on stretchy silk tanks and more subtly as the silhouette inspiration behind fit-and-flare skirts. Jersey paneling on jackets and dresses drew the eye, wavelike, down the body. With pieces designed to be literally thrown on, rendered in a fresh palette of white, steel gray, and marine blue, the Colovoses captured the season's breezy attitudealbeit in their own streamlined way. Even minimalists, it seems, go on holiday.
